This is a widespread species with a very large range and no known major widespread threats and therefore assessed as Least Concern. It is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a threatened category.
It is assessed as Near Threatened in central and eastern Africa in view of its restriction to rain forest streams in a limited area (west Kenya to east Democratic Republic of Congo). Although it is currently common in all Ugandan rainforests, from which data are available, further forest destruction will bring this species into a threatened status.
|Range Description:||The species has been recorded from west Kenya (Kakamega Forest), all rainforests in Uganda and east Democratic Republic of Congo.|
